Great post, glad I read it, and intend to re-read it every few months - especially liked the bits about re-reviewing basic stuff periodically, each time the confidence 'peaks' and there's that tendency to get complacent.

Started out on a 2006 R6 at 15 1/2 when i barely got a permit. Although i had years of moto experience, none on a 130hp streetbike. although i havent had any major accidents (thank god), i have been in a few situations that made me realize one slip up on a 600 SS is far less forgiving than a 250 or even 450. I'm 17 now and still ride that same R6, but don't be as stupid as i was, listen to all the advice here on BARF and other riders. You may not be as lucky as i have been, it only takes that one time. Great bike, but know how to wield the power before jumping on it just because its loud, fast, and looks legit. She still scares the shit out of me.

Ride safe and have fun

Zach

Thank you for all the information that was Posted. I've been looking at buying a bike for years. The end of June I will be going to the Basic Course in Antioch CA, I want to learn how to ride a bike, and make sure I have a clear understand about the bike riding course. I'm 5'8 around 178, and looking at at 250CC, with ABS which runs at $4166. I was also fitted on a 300CC which good it was not to heavy $5900. Then I was fitted on 600CC the bike felt kinda of heavy for me, but the dealership did a test with me telling me to put my hands on my waist and straddle the bike from side to side and if I did not touch the handle to grasp my grip then I was good. The price was out of my range. I do not know whether to buy a new bike or a use bike, all i know with a used bike it do not come with a warranty, but some you can buy and extended warranty on them I really do not want to spend to much for a bike. I went looking today over at 1150 Concord CA called costco something, they had good prices but I will continue to look at different area. If you have any good place with reasonable prices by all means please hit me.
Stay Bless

What he said. Forget about buying new. Buy the ninja and get good gear, you'll be thousands ahead vs buying new and the beautiful thing is you can sell the used ninja for the exact same price when you're done with it.
